At the completion of your purchase, you will be automatically directed to a confirmation page. On this page you will have the option to print your E-Tickets. If you selected to receive them via email, you will also receive a separate email that will provide you a link to open your E-Ticket to print.

From there you can open and print your E-Tickets. You may also contact us at any time to have them emailed or mailed. Multiple E-Tickets do not grant you extra products. Only the purchase quantities will be redeemed.
How do I redeem my E-Tickets?
Each E-Ticket provides specific instructions on how to redeem your purchase under the “Note” section. Typically, you present the E-Ticket anywhere a ticket purchase or check-in occurs with a photo ID.
What do I need to bring to check-in to a hotel?
You will need to bring your driver’s license and hotel E-ticket for check-in. Most hotels require a credit or debit card on file for any incidental expenses for fees owed directly to the property.
What is the age restriction for hotel check-in?
Most hotels require you to be at least 18 years old to check-in. There are a few properties that require you to be 21 to 25 to check-in. This age requirement will be listed under the description on the hotel page or FAQ section.
How do I make a request for a show or hotel?
Once you have selected your date and show time/lodging type, a special needs box is available to write a request. We will gladly pass your request to the hotel, show or attraction when your reservation is placed. Each venue will do their best to honor your request but cannot guarantee that your requests will be accommodated.
What does reserved seating mean?
Each theater will assign you the best available seats at the time of your purchase. Some venues do not assign seats and are based on first come first serve basis the day of the show, but you will be made aware of this type of seating on your E-ticket under the “Note” section or details of the product.
When can I find out my seat location?
You can contact our customer service department 24 hours after your purchase has been made to inquire about your seat location. Our agent will contact the venue directly for seat number. Some venues do not assign seats as they are first come, first serve.
What if I'm not happy with the product I have ordered?
All reservation information is provided by the travel supplier. If you feel dissatisfied with the product as a result of the information provided on Reserve Direct website, DO NOT redeem the E-ticket. Contact Reserve Direct immediately to resolve any issues. Redeeming the E-ticket represents acceptance.
Do you offer military discounts or other types of discounts?
Our company can only offer the tickets at the price available online. Generally, military discounts can only be applied by contacting the venue directly.
How do I use a coupon from an advertisement or promotion?
We do not accept any coupons or promotion codes offered by the venues directly. You will need to contact the company promoting the coupon for the redemption process. Any coupon or promotional code offered by Reserve Direct can be entered in the Discount Coupon Code box at the time of check-out.
Can I purchase a gift card or gift certificate?
Gift certificates are available to purchase. They can be for any amount and used towards any products offered on any Reserve Direct destination website. To purchase, simply contact our customer service department. We can send the gift certificate by either email or regular mail.
Fees and Billing
Do you charge booking or ticketing fees? When are resort fees collected?
When you select the product, the cost per item is displayed. Once you place that item into the cart, the tax amount and Reserve Direct service fee is calculated and added to the overall total.
There are a few lodging properties that charge resort, cleaning, insurance or booking fees that is paid directly to the property upon check-in. This fee will be listed under the description of the room type, FAQ’s section and also available to view on your E-ticket. All cleaning, resort, and booking fees will be collected by the venue upon check-in and not included in the pre-paid reservation.
Do I have to pay sales taxes?
Yes. There are taxing laws which require the price for a product, ticket or lodging be displayed separate from the amount of tax collected in order to be accurate with tax collection and remittance. Therefore, tax is calculated and displayed separately from the price of the product, once it is placed in your shopping cart. You will NOT BE CHARGED any additional taxes beyond what is displayed in the shopping cart.
What are my payment options?
We currently accept all major credit cards including Visa, Visa Electron, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. In addition, you may also use your PayPal account. Debit cards bearing the Visa or MasterCard logo may also be used. Keep in mind that funds are immediately drawn from your account. We do not accept pre-paid cards.
When will I be charged for my purchase?
Reserve Direct will instantly reserve and guarantee your reservations as you make them. In order to do this and assure the products you have selected are reserved for you, we collect full payment at the time of order.
If I cancel, when will I see the credit posted?
When you make a cancellation, the credit portion of the order will remain on your account for one business day. This amount can be used to apply towards another purchase. After that point, a credit is issued back to the source of original payment, whether by credit card or PayPal. It could take up to 5 or 10 business days for the credit to appear, depending on your bank’s policies.
My card shows a change, but I never received a confirmation number?
If you received an error message during check-out, this pending amount is most likely a pre-authorization. A pre-authorization generally drops off within 2-5 business days depending on your banks policies. You must receive a confirmation number in order for the reservation to be processed.
Why is my credit card not processing when I tried to place my reservation?
In order to process your card, the correct billing information must match the card holder information. In order to prevent against fraud, we can only capture funds with the correct information.
What should I do if I do not recognize charges or there are unauthorized charges on my credit card statement?
Your charges for all shows, attractions and lodging properties made on our website will appear as Reserve Direct in Branson, MO. If you have unauthorized charges or see charges from Reserve Direct that you do not recognize, please contact our customer service department for assistance. We will ask a few questions including your card number, date and amount to search all reservations related to this card number.
Cancellations and Changes
Can I make a change to my order after purchase?
Yes. You can change your order at NO COST before the cancellation date. To modify number of tickets, admissions, rooms or number of nights, you must cancel the original order and make a new order for the new date or time. This can be done from within your account by logging in or by contacting customer service by telephone. Any additional costs for changes would be charged to a card number you provide for the new purchase. We do not keep your credit card information on file for security purposes.
Do you charge a fee to cancel my purchase?
For each product you have ordered, there is cancellation date listed. Any cancellations made by that date will receive a FULL REFUND with absolutely NO CANCELLATION FEES. There are a few products that we sell that are non-refundable. However, you will be made aware of that prior to order. Any products past the cancellation date cannot be changed or canceled.
What happens if the show or activity is cancelled or rained out?
In the unlikely event that a show or activity is cancelled or rained out, refunds will be handled based upon the discretion of the theater or attraction.
